See changing Message Size is not to be done only at Mailbox Level, you got to look at the Store Level, Look at Transport Rules, Global Settings, Connector Settings etc.
So if you have verified all finer points in the links that I have given, then wait for sometime and you should be fine. But the key here is all points in links provided
PS: I will be here, feel free to clarify!

In Exchange Management Console:
Server Configuration =>Mailbox => right click the database => properties => Limits
Check what is the setting in there.
